Have you read a good book lately? But don’t know how to write a glowing review that will do it justice?

Quote by Joyce Carol Oates- A good, sympathetic review is always a wonderful surprise.

Well, have I got a great blog post for you.

Rachel Polibreaks down how simple it is to write a book review.

In six steps write book reviews that sound like a pro.

  1. Cover- Good, bad, amazing or eye-catching?
  2. Reson- What inspired you to pick up this book?
  3. Plot- What did you like about the story?
  4. Characters- Did you love, hate or relate to them?
  5. Style- Did the story make sense? Flow and pacing good?
  6. Rating- Why and what rating did you give the book?

You must hop over and read the entire post. Rachel goes into a lot more detail than I did here. Then you can rock those book reviews!

I am an author who writes in order to create more peace and understanding in the world. I am a teacher who has taught students from many countries of the world. I am also a life and writing coach. I love to travel and first traveled to other countries before finally deciding to see some of the U.S., places that foreigners I met have been to, but that I hadn't. I am happily married to a teacher who identifies himself first, as a musician. We hope to someday travel together to places where I read my novel(s) and speak to people about loving life while Angelo plays his piano and entertains the audience too. I also hope to assist seniors and troubled teens to write their life stories in order to heal. Life has much to offer so I always encourage young people to hang in there and know that things WILL get better.
